The LORD Delivers His People
To the director; for the changings; a testimony to Asaph; a psalm.1O one tending Israel, take heed! O one guiding [2as 3sheep 1Joseph], the one sitting down upon the cherubim -- appear! 2Before Ephraim, and Benjamin, and Manasseh -- awaken your might, and come for the delivering us! 3O God, turn towards us, and let [2appear 1your face]! and we shall be delivered. 4O lord God of the forces, for how long are you provoked to anger over the prayer of your servants? 5You shall feed us bread of tears, and give us to drink with tears by measure. 6You made us for dispute to our neighbors; and our enemies sneer at us. 7O lord God of the forces, turn towards us, and let [2appear 1your face]! and we shall be delivered. 8[2a grapevine 3from out of 4Egypt 1You moved]; you cast out nations, and planted her. 9You opened a way before her, and you planted her roots, and [3was filled 1the 2earth]. 10[2covered 3mountains 1Her shadow], and her tendrils covered the cedars of God. 11She stretched out her vine branches unto the sea, and [2unto 3the rivers 1her shoots]. 12Why did you demolish her barrier, and [6gather her vintage 1all 2the ones 3passing by 4the 5way]? 13[4laid her wasted 1The pig 2from 3the forest], and [2boar 1the wild] feeds on her. 14O God of the forces, turn towards us indeed! And look upon us from out of heaven, and behold and visit this grapevine! 15And ready her whom [2planted 1your right hand]! and upon the son of man whom you fortified to yourself. 16She is being set on fire and being dug up. From the reproach of your face they shall be destroyed. 17Let [2be 1your hand] upon the man of your right, even upon the son of man whom you strengthened to yourself. 18For in no way should we separate from you. You shall enliven us, and [2your name 1we shall call upon]. 19O lord God of the forces, turn towards us, and let [2appear 1your face]! and we shall be delivered.
